The same evening that the Boulder Studio was hosting Daughters in Design, Berkeley welcomed the New Zealand-based designer, David Trubridge. As the slideshow projected images of Stonehenge, Brancusi, Antarctica and the family sailing on “Hornpipe” (the boat that was home for many years), Trubridge recalled life experiences that have informed his work. He spoke of phases – Earth: the connection to the structure of nature; Water: structures move, twist, have changing points of stress and need to be flexible; Earth/Water: balance of the two in form, scale, color and proportion; Air: structure light in weight, just a skin – like his New Zealand Pendants. Check out his pendants here and learn more about David Trubridge here.
